Mesut Ozil has been brought to Arsenal by Arsene Wenger, and the FIFA chief knows as much as anyone what skill set the silky midfielder can bring to the table.
His former manager won’t have a bad word said about him as a lot has been written about the player over the last few months.
For Mikel Arteta to effectively cast Ozil aside, there has to be have been a serious breach of club discipline which, as yet, hasn’t reached the public domain.
“Mesut is like if you imagine an orchestra in music. He’s a guy who plays the ball at the right time,” he said on beIN Sports, quoted by the Daily Express.
“The timing of his pass is exceptional, but the creativity of his pass is as well. In every situation he confronts, he gives the right answer and that is genius.”
“I must say he can provide the assists, the key pass. I remember he was the first one, the quickest one to break the number of assists in the Premier League. In 2015/16 he had 19 assists in the league. That is absolutely amazing.”
“If the moment is right around him, the timing of the pass will be perfect and the quality of the pass will be perfect. He’s the kind of players strikers love, always.”
“He certainly will be the biggest transfer of the January window because the world of football is a bit quiet.”
“It’s fantastic news for Fenerbahçe who are in a strong position in the league and I think he can be the piece of the puzzle to make them even more of a threat to win the Turkish league.”
